The weather has certainly changed this week… it’s beginning to feel a lot like winter out there. The horses are all growing their winter coats some have even grew a winter blanket!
This month there isn’t too much going on at Hylee other than the fact…. We have lights! Finally the lights have been hooked up again and we are again able to teach late into the evening. Moving forward our last lesson of the night is 9pm. Speaking of lessons of course we are now scheduling for the Dec schedule, anyone who isn’t already on the schedule and would like to be just send me an email. Lesson rates are posted on the website here: http://www.hyleetraining.com/boarding-training/lessons/
Get High School Credits
HCBC (Horse Council of BC) has a program that enables kids to put their riding lesson towards high school credits. Note that this can only be done with CERTIFIED COACHES (which we are). Read more about ths program on the Horse Council website: http://www.hcbc.ca/High-School-Credits.html?
Tomorrow Megan, Helen, Jamie and I are heading to the DRC Awards Banquet. Someone is getting an award, I won’t say who (but it’s not me)… It should be a fun night out for the group. Photos will be posted soon on the website.
We have now set the dates for the Christmas Camp, which is December 19th-23rd. Camps are from 9 am – 4pm Monday – Friday. Deadline for sign up is November 19th. Each camp is $300 + HST. Fifty percent of the price is required to confirm your spot. Please email and let me know that you are interested in attending. The camp schedule of events will be posted on the website shortly.
Often we are have inquiries for people who would like to volunteer or work in exchange for riding. While this is something we do, do. It’s a special type of person that this works for. It does not work for people who are timid of horses or very new to riding as the work required is labour intensive and does require handing of the horses. While we appreciate all the offers, sometimes it’s harder for us to ensure everyone’s safety than it is to just do the chores ourselves. For those that might be interested please let me know, we do have a spot open on Friday nights that could be available.
As you might notice the website has a notice that’s people know that we are now in Mission. Now – our current facility is still in Delta. However in the coming future we will be moving to Mission. I’m looking for some property here to purchase and then build a new facility. This of course takes time so nothing is happening right away :). If you could be interested in attending lessons once we move please let me know and I can keep you up to date with the progress..
Drop In Friday Nights
I have been thinking of the idea of putting some drop in lesson times on the schedule and what that would mean is that it would be easier to book. They would be group lessons and $40 for a group drop in, meaning that $40 gets you riding and it could be private or in a group. The lessons would be for adults and those with a bit of experience. Friday nights only and an email the day beforehand would be all that’s required. I’m looking for a bit of feedback on whether that is something that you could be interested in. Please reply to this email with your thoughts.
VP Mission Horse Club
Just a quick note that I have been elected as Vice President of the Mission Horse Club which means we will be attending the majority of the Mission shows this year. If you are interested in coming to some of the shows let me know.
We have a new edition arriving tomorrow 21 year old Zephyr is a grey arab and will shortly be added to our lesson string. Zephyr stands 15.2 hh and will work with the beginner adults and some more advanced children. We are very happy to have him join our lesson string. We are sure he will make a great addition.
